About this festival

This August we come together for the 2nd PEOPLE festival. To write the next episode of what has evolved from 2016 in Berlin, where we found revelation in uncertainty and surprise, in process and in collaboration, experiences that have come to define how we want to walk through life.

About 160 artists will spend a week to work and play together. On the weekend of August 18th/19th we open the doors to perform across all stages and studios at Funkhaus Berlin. Inside and outside. There will be artists you have not heard before and ones you know every song of. The work itself lighting the way.

PEOPLE is a steadily growing group of artists, creating and sharing their work. PEOPLE is non-hierarchical. It is produced and created by the artists, in full freedom. There are no headliners or bands, sponsors or brands, billing or program. It is brought to life by you and us.

August 18th / 19th, 2018. Doors 12pm. Showtime 2pm. Each day. Shows finish at 1am on Day 1 and midnight on Day 2. We highly recommend arriving on time.

Food courts, inside and outside areas by the river to enjoy in between shows. There will always be music. Close to the date all ticket holders will receive final details about the showdown.
